No we’re not just doing a run for the fun of it!!
This time, the run is to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer who offer expert care, guidance and support to people living with terminal illness, and their families.
We’ll meet on Sunday morning at Gasoline Alley Cafe for 9.30am for a Bacon Roll and a tea or coffee, then we aim to be on the road for 10am.
The run will include a variety of roads leaving Saltire towards the Leadburn inn, down the Devil’s Beeftub to St Mary’s Loch for a spot of lunch, then over to Selkirk and back up the A7 to Saltire.
£10.00 per person for the above including donation to Charity (payable on the day).
If you can’t make it on the day, you can make a donation to Marie Curie here.
Please ensure that bikes are fueled before the run, so we all get out together.
Please note this is not a race, its a day to connect with like minded people and enjoy the experience and excitement of being on 2 (or 3) wheels, whilst raising funds for a great cause!
Riders are responsible for their own ride. Be courteous, observe the laws of the road and have fun!

Join us this Saturday for the Indian Scout Bobber launch party - "STOVIES, BEERS
Join us this Saturday for the Indian Scout Bobber launch party –
“STOVIES, BEERS and BOBBERS”.
Launching the Bobber at 12 noon you’ll want to get here early.
If less is more, the Bobber is Loaded!
Slammed stance. Chopped fenders. Knobby tyres.
Blacked-out and stripped-down.
The Scout Bobber is no frills, all attitude.
The only place Indian Motorcycle didn’t hold back: the 94 barely-tamed horsepower of a 69-cubic-inch V-Twin.
Your legend is just getting started.
The Scout Bobber proves that less is truly more. True to classic Bobber style, the front and rear fenders are chopped.
94 BARELY-TAMED HORSEPOWER
A 69-cubic-inch, 1133-cc V-Twin with 6 speed transmission pumps out an impressive 94 horsepower for head-snapping acceleration and plenty of passing power.
All of this power comes with confident control and sporty, firm handling through every curve and straightaway.
The Scout Bobber has more of what you need and nothing that you don’t. It has a raw, mechanical look, minimal engine covers, and blacked-out exhaust, frame, handlebars and mirrors.
It may be stripped down, but it always stands out.
A slammed stance with the rear suspension lowered 25mm creates a low-slung profile that delivers unfiltered feedback from every inch of blacktop.
BLACKED-OUT HEADLIGHT NACELLE
When we say blacked-out, we mean it. The Scout Bobber is drenched with premium black finishes, including the front headlight nacelle.
CARTRIDGE FORK FRONT SUSPENSION
The Scout Bobber is a smooth ride in a mean body. With cartridge forks and expertly tuned front suspension, you’ll experience a stable ride at all speeds.
AGGRESSIVE, KNOBBLY TYRES
Every inch of this bike is a premium expression of aggressive street style. Knobbly tyres give this bike a menacing look.
PURPOSEFUL PEG POSITION
We pulled the pegs 38mm closer to the rider and added street tracker handlebars, putting you in a more aggressive riding position. The bond between man and machine has never been greater.
The Scout Bobber is fueled by a 94 horsepower V-Twin engine that delivers best-in-class performance. Liquid cooling ensures optimal performance in a wide variety of conditions and a cool, comfortable ride.
LOW-SLUNG LEATHER BOBBER SEAT
A low-slung, brown leather bobber seat heightens the Scout Bobber’s minimalistic style. It gives the bike an aggressive stance with the agility to rip through every curve and straightaway.
STREET TRACKER HANDLEBARS
The Scout Bobber comes standard with street tracker handlebars. Their low-rise profile puts you in a forward, more aggressive riding position so you can carve through the urban jungle with ease.
BLACK GAUGE FACE
The black gauge face complements the bike’s blacked-out style, making everything about the Scout Bobber mean and aggressive.
ALL-NEW TANK BADGE
No motorcycle brand is as legendary as Indian Motorcycle. The Scout Bobber proudly features an all-new tank badge. Bold block lettering pulls the iconic Scout emblem into a more commanding place.
BLACKED-OUT, SLOTTED EXHAUST
The Scout Bobber has a commanding presence that won’t be ignored. Blacked-out, slotted exhaust pipes reinforce its bold, sinister styling.
BLACK CAST ALUMINUM WHEELS
The Scout Bobber isn’t afraid to make a bold statement. Black cast aluminum wheels hugged by knobbly tyres merge on-road performance with urban style.

Rider training taster session available in our indoor training yard, on Sunday 15 October 2017.
Every fancied the thought of riding a scooter or motorcycle, but not sure if it’s for you?
Then come along to our Taster session day and take advantage of our indoor training yard for a taster session, where you will have fun and learn the basics on one of our Suzuki 125cc motorcycles, regardless of the weather outside.
The sessions will each last 90 minutes starting at 10am, 11.30am, 1pm and 3.30pm.
Bring a friend as there will be 2 spaces available per session. The price is £25.00 per person, and if you book your Compulsory Basic Training course with us following your taster session on the evening you will receive that £25.00 off the price of the CBT!
We will provide protective clothing, gloves and a helmet. You will need to wear a pair of sturdy boots (but no steel toe caps).
Please arrive 15 minutes before your time slot to get checked in.
A Full or provisional car photo-card licence is required (if you have the old paper style licence please also bring photographic ID) and a sense of adventure and fun.
Hot refreshments will be available throughout.
To book your taster session, contact Lindsay on 0131 478 6661 option 4 or please email email@example.com.
The Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) is the first step to getting you on the road and requires no previous experience.
At Saltire we will provide you with a bike (Suzuki Van Van RV125 or automatic scooter) and any clothing you need to borrow, except boots. Once you have completed your CBT, you will qualify for a discount in our clothing department, so you can start building up your own bike kit.
Prices are as follows:
CBT Monday-Friday – £160
CBT Weekends – £175
The CBT has a curriculum set by the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and was introduced in 1990 with the aim of increasing skills for learner motorcyclists and improving road safety. It is made up of five different elements, some in the classroom, some in the training yard and lastly out on the road.
Saltire Instructors will only take you out onto the public highway once they feel that you are confident handling a motorcycle, and safe to do so. Traditionally, the CBT course is one full day, but can continue for another half day or so, depending on how individual students get on (or if the weather causes problems!)
Learners will be expected to use the roads safely and legally, so we highly recommend that provisional licence holders read The Highway Code before undertaking a CBT. But remember, The Highway Code is for life, not just for learners!
Buy The Official Highway Code here.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 0131 478 6661 option 4.
